Tobacco Questions for Surveys (TQS) Conference
 
Date : 12-13 August 2013 Venue : Geneva - Switzerland

The TQS Conference “A subset of Key Questions from the Global Adult Tobacco Survey” was organised under the auspices of the World Health Organization (WHO) and the Centres for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in Geneva, Switzerland on 12-13 August 2013.

TQS was developed to harmonize and standardize the monitoring of key tobacco control indicators outlined in WHO MPOWER. TQS is a list of 22 survey questions that can be integrated into national, sub-national and international surveys to promote data comparability within and across countries over time.

Prof. Savaş Alpay, Director General of SESRIC, attended the conference and gave a presentation on “The Current Status of Tobacco Use and Tobacco Control Measures in OIC Member Countries”.
